M47 Repeat
« on: February 15, 2009, 11:40:57 AM »
I'm trying to repeat a program with the M47 command.
I put this at the end of my g-code.
The program rewinds to the beginning but stops. I have to click Cycle start to get in going again.
How do I use M47 to have it repeat without interaction from me?

Thanks
Scrappy

Depending on how long the code is but an M99 may be what your looking for.

It's just a few lines of code.
When I use M99 Mach3 hangs on a "please wait... generating path" window.

I added more lines of code and the M47 works now.
Thanks for the suggestion.
